Individuals in adult literacy programs often have different immigration statuses and many questions about money management. Therefore, integrating financial literacy lessons into the curriculum is important. The New York Public Library Money Matters program is a useful resource.

On Tuesday, May 20, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the Science, Industry, and Business Library (SIBL) branch, 188 Madison Avenue at 34th Street, Conference Room 018, Simon Brady, CFP, from TA Planners, will present “Not a U.S. Citizen? What You Need to Know about Financial Planning.” Interested English for speakers of other languages educators and adult students can attend the free workshop.

Attendees will gain clarity about the financial planning issues that pertain to different immigration statuses. Brady will shed light on the “many factors that adults should consider such as the financial and taxation consequences related to getting U.S. citizenship or a green card.”

Although there are many advantages to “stepping up” an individual’s immigration status, there are financial responsibilities and possible pitfalls, which Brady will explain. Registration is not required, but seating is on a first-come first-seated basis.
